Resources for Prospective Students


The Basics

Housing is an exciting and confusing part of the college experience. We're dedicated to providing you with resources to help you learn more and make decisions you feel good about!

Start by learning about Housing Costs and Eligibility for Housing.
Explore our different On-Campus Housing Options (NOTE: First year students live in Bonaventure and Marian Halls).
If you're unsure what to bring to campus when you move in, check out our list of suggestions.

Finding a Roommate

Viterbo University uses a program called RoomSync to help incoming students explore their roommate options and match up based on similar majors, interests, housing options, or lifestyle preferences.

After completing your Housing Agreement and submitting your down payment, a link to RoomSync (along with a secure passcode) will be emailed to you via your Viterbo email and any other provided email addresses. Fill in your profile with your lifestyle preferences, interests, and housing options, then start browsing! Chat with users who you're interested in and send or accept incoming requests from the users you’d like to live with. 

If you find someone you'd like to live with during a Scholarship Competition or a Visit Day, you can request to live with them using this form. If you'd like, staff in the Office of Student Life can also match you with a roommate with similar lifestyle preferences instead of you finding your own roommate. Several individuals do this every year, and tend to find their roommate relationships are as good or better than their peers who self-selected!
